Fresh and feisty, our twist on an American Amber Ale is aromatic and uplifting. Five malts mingle for a rich, complex flavor. Named after the Effra river, which now flows beneath urban Brixton, this ale is perfect for deep thirsts.

wheresthepath (2027) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle from London Beer Lab. Hazy amber-brown with a large, craggy off-white head. Pleasant aroma of piney American hops with a little caramel. Caramel and pine continue on tasting with some lemon, jam, chocolate and a light roast. Spoilt a little by a rather metallic bitterness in the finish but nevertheless it’s ok overall.

nota (44) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Beautiful amber haze with slightly off-colour head. Caramel & cereal nose; light, musty hops. Bright and immediately hoppy with little malt body. Kind of a shame the taste doesn’t match the promising colour.
